Michigan Lottery: Man visiting family in Warren buys ticket, wins $2M jackpot
A Pennsylvania man claimed his $2.08 million Lotto 47 jackpot prize one month before the prize was set to expire.
The lucky 59-year-old player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched the winning Lotto 47 numbers drawn September 25, 2021: 07-12-22-24-30-37.
He bought his winning ticket at Shoppers Market Plus, located at 14350 East Nine Mile Road in Warren.
“I purchased the ticket while I was in Michigan visiting family,” said the player. “When I checked the winning numbers and saw I’d won the jackpot, I was in disbelief! I waited to claim my prize until I had a plan in place for the money.”
The player visited Lottery headquarters to claim the big prize. He chose to receive his prize as one lump-sum payment of about $1.3 million rather than annuity payments for the full amount.
With his winnings he plans to purchase a truck and then save the remainder for retirement.
